7 Essentials Every Guy Needs for the Winter
During the winter, certain things will make your life a whole lot easier. The main thing you need to make sure you have during the colder months is a wardrobe, which is fully up to date. If you want to ensure you’re fully kitted out for next winter, here are some of the main essentials that you should have in your possession.
- Snow boots
It depends where you live and where you’ll be travelling to during the winter, but snow boots are an essential to have in your winter wardrobe. If you buy a pair of winter boots that are high quality, they will last you for many years even if you wear them a lot when it’s cold and snowy. Snow boots are also a must if you have plans to travel to a winter destination such as Canada, Austria or the Alps for skiing.
- Thick jacket
If you don’t want to get something too thick, you can always buy a bomber jacket in a material such as leather, which will keep you warm if the weather isn’t freezing cold. However, you might also want to get a thicker jacket that you can wear for longer periods of time when the weather is at its coldest.
Like hand cream, a good face moisturiser can help to keep your skin soft and moisturised throughout the colder months. Your skin will look great and feel great too. You’ll be able to avoid developing any dry or flaky patches if you moisturise every day with a good cream that is designed for your face.
- Dark jeans
During the winter, you can’t go wrong with a pair of dark coloured jeans. They can be paired with almost any tops and jackets, so when you go shopping, look for black or dark blue jeans. The darker colour will also keep you warmer when the temperature drops.
- Lip balm
There’s nothing worse than dry lips during the winter, so when you step outside, always make sure you have some lip balm with you. Many guys worry about buying lip balms which have ‘girly’ scents, but there are many products which are more than suitable for guys, such as Burt’s Bees Peppermint flavoured lip balm.
- Hand cream
If you want to avoid getting dry hands throughout the winter, invest in some good quality hand cream. Even if your hands aren’t particularly dry, use the hand cream every day to keep dry hands at bay. It will keep your hands nice and soft all year round and you won’t have to deal with any painful cracks or cuts after being out in the cold.
- Beanie hat
Keep your head warm this winter with a fashionable beanie hat. If you don’t want to get one with a bobble on top, there is plenty of choice when it comes to woolly hats that don’t have anything extra added to them. If your head is warm, the rest of your body will be much warmer too.
